Highlights: The Weight
Subject: Vince's Casio Rig
The sound of Vince's "Casio Rig" has always disappointed me, and Bruce's grand piano here accentuates it. If that wasn't Vince's call, whose was it? And why?
Subject: RIP Vince
Sandman retracts his insensitive statement he heartlessly posted below. I don't know the full story of Vince but have been doing some research on the man, because, for some wonderful reason, this band will always be the soundtrack of my life. Long live the Dead! peace and love be with you all! Lesson learned. Now I've got some '94 to listen to.
Subject: aint no time to hate
Vince's "casio" rig and his sounds were not of his own choosing. Don't hate on someone you haven't bothered to learn about.
PS - and detracting stars because of the inclusion of Stella and Box? wha?
Enuf with the sniping. Just get confused and listen to the music play.
Subject: rip Vince, but your sound blew
Lovely show.But, I think we should have ditched Vince and kept Bruce. Vince adds that weird circus sound that often sounds like he's farting through a Casio. He totally overpowers Hornsby, and everybody else for that matter. I find it hard to listen to.
Subject: Sweet memories
The thing that I remember most from this show was the energy that Hornsby brought with him. We were all still stinging from Brent's loss and Hronsby on his grand piano really helped me have a great time. I had pretty good seats and could clearly see the interplay between Jerry and Bruce, it looked like Jerry was going to sing all of The Weight, but as he stepped up to the mike for the second verse he was a beat off and Bruce just took it. Jerry glared at him for a second, then got this huge smile and stepped back from the mike grinning like the Cheshire Cat. The tears are runing down my face just thinking about that moment.
Subject: Great tour
Fall '90 may not be Spring '77 but they were a completely different band back then. At least we get Crazy Fingers in '90! None the less, there's some great energy in a lot of the fall '90 shows. Bird Song this night is special because it's Bruce Hornsbys first taste into the magic of Grateful Dead improv and he keeps up no prob. There's some great interviews with Hornsby talking about the dead mystique..he fit in great.
Subject: hornsby buzz and a good sets
the buzz was that bruce hornsby was going to be sitting in and that seemed like a rather weird thing to most before stepping in the arena and hearing a great show - it had some good energy and the right combo of some new stuff that rocks (opening with touch of grey seemed a little poetic muse about another new keyboardist) and great oldies such as playing, uncle johns, NFA bird song; would give it five stars due to fact hornsby and the band had everyone leaving smiling that night after we all were wondering what this latest musical turn would bring.
But, the inclusion of stella blue and box of rain brang the show down a bit, so only four stars (all shows should be five stars since you were always allowed to leave for a while but I know some need to critique hence the stars system)
good show, only post Brent gimme some lovin. It's not the same without his B-3 and soulfulness, though
Subject: Downloadable Version
Anyone know where I can get a downloadable version?
The sound on this show is awesome. really strong performance from the first notes of Touch. 5 star sound, 4+ star performance.....High 4 overall in my opinion.
Subject: sounds good
wonder what it would sound like in my car? Ill never know.
Subject: Great jerry guitar solo in stella
The last solo by jerry during stella is so great please listen to it now.
Subject: overlooked indeed
Flew in from cali just to see Bruce's first night. No improv like in later shows, but the weight second set opener was nice. The only Gimme some love post brent and a long second set made for a nice start to bruce's stay with the dead.
For all of the great nights in this run, this one is often overlooked. But, the band is in fine form with Bruce's first night, and he belts it out during The Weight and adds the grand piano to Playin....it all sounds awesome to me. Energetic after space too with the rare post Brent Gimme Some Lovin. Saturday Night ends it up crackling. Great show.
this was NOT the first performance of the Dirty Gondola verse in Masterpiece as stated in the text. The Richfield show on 9/7 contains that verse as well, not sure if that was the first or not.
